Four of the properties are at the ramps of La Rica, one in Santa Anaa and the other in Atenas.

Rodríguez said that once a judge gives the order for possession or rules for a higher value, the concessionaire, Autopistas del Sol, can complete the remaining work on the highway.

The appraised value of the each of the six lots is around ¢70 million colones (US$140.000 dollars), according to data from the CNC.
